Take time to be with others in grief and engage the creative spark.

Take time to be with others in grief and engage the creative spark. Jamie Siela, LISW, from Unity Point Hospice facilitates this monthly grief support group open to anyone grieving loss through death. On the third Wednesday of each month, explore a different creative medium at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha). Bring your creative ideas to help brighten the days of others! On Sept. 16, we will create a memory mandala. We will spend our time together using colored pencils to complete unique mandala prints. Coloring is considered a good mind exercise because it utilizes both sides of the brain’s cerebral cortex as it promotes motor skills and coordination. Coloring can also utilize the logic-based part of the brain through the choice of color or pattern. This support group is offered as a partnership between Prairiewoods and Unity Point Hospice. If we are unable to meet in person due to COVID-19, this will be offered via Zoom with a Group to Go kit available for pickup the week prior to group. This group is free and includes all art supplies. Registration is required by the previous Friday. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at www.Prairiewoods.org or 319-395-6700.
